With a pair of stilettos in her hands celebrity stylist Dani Michelle looked most at home on the white-washed rooftop of the PUBLIC Hotel in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. She was accompanied by numerous people and a team of Designer Shoe Warehouse tastemakers and publicist, she then floated beside and past the champagne flutes’ trays and well-credentialed, well-dressed guest to have a survey of the mock shrine to her curation. The celebrity stylist then lingered over a set of silver Crocs, t-strap Mary Janes, and cowhide mules. Setting up near the terrace came as to be a broad framed in different sets of black-and-white hydrangeas and roses, that then ensconce her name as well as a collection of footwear that was handpicked by her making that a part of The Dani Michelle x DSW Fall Edit that was launched in early September.
Often Dani Michelle is known and have a recognition of styling Kylie Jenner, Kendall Jenner, and Kourtney Kardashian, and also back in time was a staffer at Seventeen prior to she moved into the world of having the personal styling. It was said by her that this came as to be way before having a digital age where then happened to be the transparency that there exists stylists. While she further adds that she figured out if she needed and wanted, and had a will to work in fashion, then she should start working at a magazine. But when she encountered and watched different stylists at work who were working on a photoshoot, she could tell and presume intuitively that she has been in the wrong field and she needs a switch. For this she made her quick movement to Los Angeles and then went and got right into it, and this is where she stands today after a decade and three to four years.
After investing years behind the scenes and back stage, her work made its progress and made its presence big enough to further claim different self-claimed projects. Back in 2020, with UK-bases clothing retailer Missguided a line was released by her, and these days she is working over the promotion of her curation for DSW that is a small selection of different types of shoes, including boots, heels, and sneakers that was deemed by Michelle on-trend for fall. Different options are included in this edit, such as classic checkered Vans, Chelsea boots, a snakeskin platform clog, bedazzled slingback sandal, that all are ideal to be included in your outfit and be a part of your dressing in autumn.
Michelle’s wary of having an association of her own personal favorites with those that her clients consider as to be their favorites, though this all could be considered as to see her influence in their wardrobes. As said by her and according to her, the taste she carries have got a difference from her clients. But again, according to her she also sees a piece of her in each of them, which means she becomes a part of each of her client’s preferences and this is really the way it works according to her, she sees them for who they are and what they carry, and then they pull that particular part out of her heart and then have a translation of her version of them.
This then have an inclusion of a gradual adaption with the change of her own clients’ tastes. For instance, and considering as a perfect example, Kourtney. Since the time that celebrity and her personality had embraced a whirlwind romance with Travis Barker, her boyfriend and drummer, the style she carry has gone through leaning into punk-rock styles that then translates and reflects his own, and even incorporating his metal T-shirts as to be a part of her own closet. When she was asked about what reaction she had of the new look, Michelle came as encouraging of the challenge and considered it beautiful to watch her constant evolution, and being able to grow together with Kourtney.
But for the shoppers who have zero will to don a Cannibal Corpse shirt just yet, there comes simpler recommendations from Michelle for trendy fall looks, as per her, she loves different neutrals that are paired with a pop of bright color and heavy, big boots that then are paired with any sort of knit sweaters and delicate skirts. While for this season, she is there especially having an obsession with knee-high boots, square-toe shoes, and the comeback of Mary Janes, which then marry prep with power.
In particular, the DSW collaboration for Michelle was considered as a meaningful enterprise since her grandfather’s good friend was once on board of the company’s ownership team. She then longed to have a translation of her celebrity-centric work which then often came as the celebrity budget, to the masses. She had her shoe selects under the worth of $200 that made it all available for the ones who were off the A-list.
According to her, it feels trendy like the shoes are on the cusp of on the cusp of what is particularly happening and going around in fashion at a very accessible price point, while for her it just is really pieced that she could then use in their own styling that is figured by her to be used by everyone else too.
